What is the user experience (UX) design?

User experience design (UX) is the process of creating and enhancing products in order to increase user satisfaction. It is done by improving the design, usability, and functioning of the product. This requires a multi-discipline approach because of the variety of tasks. Since the user experience consultancy is a highly sophisticated activity, hiring professional user experience consultants will bring the best results.

How we made the choice?

The internet is full of various agency listings but mostly they are oriented on only one point like feedback or only how the end design looks or they are paid listings that don't concern about overall product quality and offer agencies that create a terrible design. This is, of course, our take with multiple. Please be sure to check them out in details and then you can make your mind which design agency will you choose for your digital product.

We chose the agencies according to many factors. Some of them include:

  • Quality of final design
  • Quality of UX design
  • Advanced services offer
  • UX experience
  • References
  • Knowledge background

How much does UX design cost?

Every UX agency price is different from the other. Various clients have various requirements who want a unique design every time. Companies charge accordingly, either they have a fixed rate or hourly charge. Hourly rate is usually between $40 - $200 USD depending on the agency.

The usual cost range of medium-sized mobile app project is around 10,000-30,000 USD for mockup/UI quality design that includes interaction prototype.

User research and user testing are priced separately.

What is the process of UX design?

There are a few basic steps for the majority of the UX designing from agencies.

The first step usually involves UX consultancy about the project and project research. This also includes user research etc. Once the service design consultants have identified scope, primary structure, and personas, the designers start working on the ultimate goal; information architecture wireframes, prototype, etc.

Then, the prototype is presented for initial feedback and testing.

After this, the agency starts working on the interface design such as brand colors, typefaces and other design features that are relevant to the brand.

Once ready, the project is then composed into a much higher level of finish. This project is then moved onto the user testing and then ultimately to the development team.
